Kinship is a key factor that can influence the fitness benefits associated with social behaviors through the operation of kin selection. A species' patterns of dispersal, and resulting fine-scale spatial genetic structure, can mediate kin selection by altering both the capacity for kin cooperation and the intensity of kin competition. In this study, we used proximity logger collars and multilocus genotypes to investigate how genetic relatedness influences the associations of mountain brushtail...[Show more]
